  • A Miller Family genealogy gives us Elizabeth's first name.
    Nancy Elizabeth MILLER b: 1850
    --  Miller,*v28t1777&id=I0778

    But this genealogy also had two entries for what appears to be the same child.  Entries appear for Elizabeth and Nancy Elizabeth with birth dates apparently estimated on the basis of censuses I have not yet personally reviewed.  Ages lead to possible birth years of 1847, 1948 and 1850.
    Elizabeth MILLER b: 1848
    Nancy Elizabeth MILLER b: 1850

    In the 1850 censsus, Nancy is already reproted as 2 years old.  But ages in this census compared with later ones vary considerably on the members of this family, generally reporting them as older than later censuses and birth dates form family sources would allow.

    Nancy Miller 34 F b Alabama Cannot read or write
    Mary Ann Miller 13 F b Mississippi
    Nancy E Miller 2 F b Mississippi

    The 1860 census below reports an age of 10, which, if accurate, would mean birth before July 1850.  The name there is also Nancy Eliza.  It may be that the genealogy erred in reporting her full name as Elizabeth.  Perhaps Eliza is the full name, though it could be a nickname for Elizabeth.  Eliza was also a common given name in this era.

    Nancy later married the Boarder in their household, William Sam DeBerry.  In 1900 they are in the same area.  From the birth of their first child, it appears they married about 1882.  Some of Nancy's familiy are staying in the same household.
